UK government publishes the National Disability Strategy – Avenues Response

Thursday 29th of July 2021

This strategy begins to address the unfairness that faces so many people in their day to day lives. However, if the Government is seeking to “improve the everyday lives of all disabled people”, it falls short.

‘Disabled people’ are a hugely diverse group, many of whom are already deprived of the basic social care support they need to access opportunities and live decent lives, so will not have fair access to the improvements the strategy promises.
The real need is for reform of the social care system. Until this happens, too many will be left behind by this report and others, which don’t address the root problems.
